Dr. Chen is the adolescent & adult psychiatry assessment supervisor for the First Contact Assessment Service, which evaluates individuals who are showing early signs of a possible psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia.

The First Contact Assessment Service generally does not follow patients over time, but provides evaluation reports to the treating psychiatrist.
